Posted by:

We are pleased to announce a new workshop for intermediate to advanced photographers who want to enhance creativity and establish an effective workflow for managing and processing their RAW camera files into exhibition quality prints by using Adobe Lightroom, Aperture, Adobe Photoshop, or Nikon Capture NX 2.

Digital Darkroom ~ Getting more form Raw

The workshop starts with a tethered shooting session using a variety of digital cameras to allow direct comparison of image characteristics and quality for each camera class: point and shoot and DSLR (full frame and APSC). Images will be analyzed to show the effect of exposure, ISO rating and lighting on image quality. Techniques will be presented to demonstrate how to create atmosphere and mood while shooting and for further enhancement through RAW image processing.

Next we’ll take a look at the differences between RAW and Jpeg file formats and explore the significant quality implications of these differences, review the leading RAW image processing software and demonstrate RAW processing techniques for image enhancement.
